I was given a bunch of really old advertisements for combs, Tide, Quaker Oats, etc. I loved them right from the start for many reasons (mostly, I love OLD stuff and I teach advertising) but wasn't sure what I was going to do with them.
Finally while finishing up my kitchen, I decided to run down to Salvation Army and buy a couple frames to see if I'd like them framed. I just happened to have to mats lying around so I painted them the same color and the kitchen and slapped those puppies inside.
I love them. End of story.
